No library access on 12/29

We have been informed that the GRI building will be closed to Extended Readers on Tuesday, Dec. 29 due to maintenance.

Although this closure has been confirmed, please note that this schedule could change without notice; because the library offices will be closed beginning Dec. 24, we will not be able to update our readers of any changes to access until we reopen on Jan. 4.

Best wishes for the holidays,
